Singular Software’s DualEyes audio syncing software is now available as a beta for Mac users. The program removes the hassle of manually synchronizing separately recorded audio and video files.
Dual Eyes is a stand-alone program that works alongside any video editing application, replacing in-camera scratch audio with separately recorded high-quality audio. Appropriate for both new and experienced editors, it synchronizes and cuts the audio to automatically match each video clip in both start time and duration. With more people turning to DSLR filmmaking, where the camera can’t record high-quality audio, there’s a need for an easy syncing solution.
The beta software is available for those using Mac OS X 10.5 and later, and is a free download. The existing Windows version runs on Windows XP, Vista, and 7 (32-bit and 64-bit) and sells for $149.
Calling it “Brilliant!,” filmmaker and director David Smith said this of DualEyes: “Once again, Singular Software has identified a real need and addressed it elegantly. The software is intuitive to use, the labeling of newly created files is logical, and the whole process is rapid and efficient. Although designed with DSLR videographers in mind, this clever software will find many other uses and, like PluralEyes and Presto before it, will be a ‘must have’ item in your NLE toolbox.”
